CANTON Mo. — The Culver-Stockton College Robison Lecture at 7 p.m. Monday, April 15, in The Lab on the third floor of the Johann Library will feature Andy Walsh, professor of religion and philosophy at C-SC.

The lecture will delve into the complex dynamics of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, exploring the intersection of religion and just war theory. This event is free and open to the public.

Walsh will dissect the actions of both Hamas and the Israeli government, scrutinizing their adherence to the principles of just war theory. Attendees will gain insights into how both parties have, at times, failed to conform to fundamental principles such as last resort, noncombatant immunity and proportionality.

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict stands as one of the most enduring and contentious disputes in modern history, deeply rooted in historical, religious and political factors. Walsh will examine this conflict through the lens of just war theory and provide a detailed understanding of the ethical dimensions at play.

“We are honored to have Dr. Walsh present this timely and insightful lecture,” C-SC President Lauren Schellenberger said in a press release. “With tensions in the region persisting, it is crucial to engage in thoughtful discourse that considers the moral complexities of the conflict.”

The Robison Lecture Series is dedicated to fostering dialogue and understanding on critical global issues. Tthe series annually brings together leading experts and thought leaders to engage with audiences on topics ranging from politics and economics to culture and society.
